Premier T20 Cup

Wadebridge can already start to think about booking the Premier T20 Finals Day off after they extended their unbeaten start to four games after making light work of defending champions Callington in their two matches at Moores Park on Saturday. Kevin Renecke’s 32 helped the visitors to 110 in the first match, before Kelvin Snell took a superb 4-7 as they dismissed their hosts for 58 to triumph by 52 runs.

The visitors were keeping plenty in their locker for the second match as the early pacesetters claimed victory by 129 runs. James Turpin hit 65 and Matthew Robins added 62 as Wadebridge set Callington 204 to win, with Turpin taking 3-18 as the home side were skittled out for 76.

St Just lead the west pool after taking their competition record to three wins from four following a pair of victories at Hayle on Saturday. Max Waller top-scored with 36 as the visitors triumphed by 66 runs in the opener, with some superb bowling from Gareth May (4-18), Waller (3-8) and Ben Stevens (2-7) restricting Hayle to 60 all out.

Hayle captain Tom Sharp led by example with 47 as the home side made an improved 102-6 in the second match, but May’s unbeaten 34 and Waller’s 40 off 21 balls did much of the work as the visitors required just 12 overs to record victory by seven wickets.

Penzance and Camborne are two of five teams sat on two wins from four thus far after the sides earned one victory apiece in west Cornwall on Saturday. Camborne drew first blood, winning by ten runs in the opening game. Lewis Goldsworthy top-scored with a modest 25 as the visitors made 98-5 in their innings, but a Gareth Mankee-led (3-20) attack dismissed their hosts for 88 with three balls remaining.

Penzance would have their revenge later in the afternoon, however, as they triumphed by 45 runs in the second game. There were no such batting woes this time as Christian Purchase’s pyrotechnics (89) guided the hosts towards 202-4, with Liam Weeks’s impressive 70* not enough as Camborne managed 157-3 before running out of balls.

Another two teams with two wins apiece are St Austell and Redruth after they shared the spoils at Wheal Eliza. The hosts were victorious in the midday match as Daniel Jarman’s 58 catapulted the Saints towards 167-2, with a steady unbeaten 50 from Karl Leathley not enough as Redruth could only manage 105-1 in reply.

The boot was very much on the other foot later on as Redruth, led by Craig Johnson’s 3-20, restricted their hosts to 100-8, before Toby Whiteford (38*) and Jack Hale (33*) helped knock that total off after little more than ten overs to record victory by nine wickets.

It was very much a case of redemption for Werrington, who, after becoming the only side to fail to register a win on the opening weekend, claimed victory in both matches at home to Truro on Saturday. The east Cornwall outfit ran out nine-wicket winners in match one, with Charlie Kent and Murray Wyatt both recording 30 as Truro made 113-5, before Adam Hodgson’s unbeaten 47 helped see the hosts home in the 16th over.

Hodgson turned his attentions to the ball in the second match as Werrington triumphed by seven wickets, taking 3-22 as Truro made 139-8, before Ben Jenkin (57*) provided the vital runs to see the hosts over the line with 15 balls to spare.

County Division 1

Grampound Road still have the maximum points available after taking another 20 from their game at Redruth 2 on Saturday, winning by eight runs at the recently renamed TimbaBuild Park. It was down to sixth batsman Adam Thomas who provided 45 as Grampound reached 207-9, and although Redruth slipped to 118-9, a timely 51 from 11th batsman Dylan Caddy gave the hosts hope, although that finally ran out when he was dismissed with two balls remaining.

Beacon are two points behind the Roadies after defeating Helston by 33 runs at Clodgey Lane. Darren Proctor weighed in with 42 as Beacon set their hosts 183 to win, but despite a handy 60 from opener Dan Jenkin, a lower-order collapse saw Helston dismissed for 149 after 45.1 overs.

Paul also made it two wins from two and sit one point further back after they beat Newquay by 34 runs at Hutchens Park. Ben Brooks provided a useful knock of 54 from 124 balls as the hosts made steady progress towards 171 before their dismissal. Jack Howarth took 4-18 for Newquay and he was their top scorer in their reply, managing 26 as the visitors were all out for 137.

Falmouth recorded their first win of the campaign, running out four-wicket winners over Callington 2 at the Hine Downing Oval. The visitors got off to a good start with openers Richard Brown (32) and Alex Robinson (38) weighing in with a combined 70, only for Callum Stephens (5-13) to take charge and remove five players as Callington slumped to 131 all out. Richard Kellow was one of two players to make double figures in the hosts’ reply, but his 57 was more than enough as the hosts eased over the line in the 34th over.

Newly-promoted Mullion earned their first win of the season, bagging a comprehensive 139-run victory at Lanhydrock. A 108-run stand for the first wicket between Joss Hearn (58) and Ryan Pascoe (60) did much of the legwork as Mullion posted a very useful 231, with Pascoe (3-9) and Dylan Mitchell (3-28) starring with the ball as Lanhydrock were skittled out for 92.

St Erme posted the biggest score of the day as they defeated Werrington 2 by 66 runs at Castle Field. Sean Hooper’s unbeaten 80 helped the mid-Cornwall outfit to 258-7, with Werrington, despite an unbeaten 56 from tenth batsman Robert Dymond, being dismissed for 192.
